I still don't think there's much of a difference for different people.
Those who manage to get up high on the first try will only find a
second sky to climb, and a third one, and then a fourth... There is a
certain element of unique expression in all music and usually the last
person to notice this element is the creator of the music. I was once
working as a writer in a team and one day the project leader took me to
visit one of the graphical designers. The designer was a very nice guy,
now working on a poster. He showed off his work and since I didn't
think it was very good I did not say much. But the project leader kept
encouraging the designer and saying it was "so good". When we got out
from on the street the project leader said to me "No matter how good
they are, these creative people always think they suck big time. You
have to constantly keep reminding them that they are great, 'cause if
you forget to do so you will not get the best work from them". As time
went by it appeared that the poster was actually good and I even came
to broaden my references to understand why.
